TANJUNG PUTING ACCOMMODATION NEAR THE PARK

The Rimba Ecolodge is perched on the edge of the Sekonyer River and is surrounded by forest. The rooms, restaurant, and main lodge are built on elevated platforms. There are no roads: access is only by boat from the Port of Kumai. Chartered speedboats can be arranged from Kumai Harbor.
I highly recommend staying here for a night before your tour starts and having the klotok pick you up at Rimba Ecolodge.

TANJUNG PUTING ACCOMMODATION NEAR KUMAI AND KUMAI-AREA
Run by Yayorin (Yayasan Orangutan Indonesia), a grass roots conservation NGO, this homestay is close to the airport and partway between Pasir Panjang and Pangkalan Bun. The rooms have woven fiber walls, batik print linens, and private verandas overlooking wooded gardens. Absolutely charming! In the past, they have offered guests their motorbike to go to a nearby restaurant, or offered dinner on the veranda. Yayorin can also book taxis to the airport, which takes about twenty minutes.
KARAYA BEACH HOMESTAY
For a very unique, rural homestay in a stunning beach setting, consider a trip to Karaya Beach and a homestay with Ninik Usuk (ninik means grandmother in the Malay language), a local woman from Karaya village. For more information, see the Other Tours section.
